The eternal question asked by adults to children is:
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Thanks to having written the 3-book series HOW TO SUCCEED IN HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGE AND BEYOND COLLEGE, I believe the question children should be asked is:
What do you love to do or learn now?
If your 12-year-old son replies he would like to learn how to bake, teach him now! This does not mean he will necessarily be a baker as an adult. But encouraging the following of his passion may lead to the exploration of interesting pathways.
Or if your 14-year-old daughter says she is interested in studying rock formations, figure out how she can study this subject now.
In other words, while teens are preparing for high school and college, following their passions now can be very important for their entire lives as well as for their college application essays.
HOW TO SUCCEED IN HIGH SCHOOL AND PREP FOR COLLEGE has valuable information for students in high school as well as those in college and college graduates. Click here to download the ebook for FREE on December 13 on Kindle.
